So, you’re planning an event.

Picking your venue is a big decision, but it’s only the first step of many. Our team will make this first step the easiest and most transparent – no red tape, no hidden costs, and no policies that get in the way of you doing your thing.

For us, meetings are all about you – how can we make the process simple and painless? And, once you’re here, of course you’ll enjoy naturally-lit meeting rooms, delicious food, great activities, and incredibly friendly staff, all less than 2 hours from Toronto on easy-driving roads.

Overview

The Basics
Capacity
We have 28 rooms and 18 cottages, with a total capacity of between 60 and 160 (depending on who’s sharing a bed with whom). Meeting rooms range from seating 10 to 100.
Activities
We can help you get nothing done; our team will take you foraging, show you how to use a compass (then tell you to get lost), take you kayaking, or teach you how to play disc golf. We’ll even lend you an assortment of dogs to take on your hikes.
Dining
We love food. Really. We really really do. We have a small on-site farm, grow our own herbs and some veggies year round, and know most of our local farmers. Our meals are always fresh, local, and fun. And we’re not just saying that.
What makes us different
  • One simple price, perfectly transparent. See below for our pricing chart, with no hidden fees.
  • Simplicity simplified. We plan meetings all day every day, and can help you get all the details done in about 20 minutes, letting you focus on herding your (cats) guests.
  • Attrition policies. We don’t worry too much about narrowing down your numbers months in advance.
  • It’s all fun and games. All our activities are available to your guests, and we’re happy to work with you on team-building and organized fun.
  • Simple meals. You don’t need to pour over menus in advance – our chefs can put together menus for you based on the freshest ingredients in the days leading up to your meeting. We’ll take into account the meal style you’d like, allergies, and the weather to make sure your guests make it back to the meeting full and happy.

Useful stuff to help convince your boss

  • A PowerPoint showing how we’re the best retreat location ever!
  • A sample contract (in plain English, without tiny text).
  • A sample event sheet, which keeps you and our team in the loop on how the day is going to play out.
  • A sample invoice – yep, again it’s really simple. And clear. And without surprises.

Addendum

A common reaction from experienced meeting planners seems to be to try to find our super secret hidden costs. To date, there have yet to be any found, but some of our favourite questions have been:

  • “Is there a cost to hike the trails?” (No.)
  • “Is there a charge to change computers hooked up to the projector?” (…No?)
  • “You advertise bonfires. Is there a cost to have one for our group?” (No.)
  • “When you say all day coffee, what do you mean?” (That we have a coffee station set up all day, based on your schedule, with unlimited coffee for your attendees.)
  • “Are there extra charges for vegetarian meals?” (No.)
  • “We want to do an afternoon break out session, but if it’s nice, we want people to do it outside. What would be the cost for that?” (Just wear and tear on the rocks.)
  • “When you say you have no resort fees, what about service or marketing fees?” (A fee by any other name would smell as bitter. We don’t add an arbitrary percent just because we can. We’ve gone tip free, and all staff are paid well based on that.)

Effective December 4, 2015

We at Viamede Resort value the privacy of all our guests and friends. That’s why in addition to a lock on the door of each guestroom, we have detailed how we use any information we receive.

Oh—and before we go any further—we’ll just let everyone know right off the bat that we comply with current Canadian privacy legislation.

1) What kind of information do we collect?

There are two different types of information that we collect: personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) and non-personally identifiable information (“Non-Personal Information”).

This might sounds complicated but it’s fairly straightforward.

Personal Information

We are a resort and people come visit, book rooms, and enjoy gourmet local food all of the time. As a result of these exchanges, we end up collecting some personal information—which is usually voluntarily given—that includes things like:

We take this information very seriously and only use it to facilitate your stay with us and to keep you in the loop should you wish.

Non-Personal Information

Through your interactions with us, our website and analytics platforms, and through our advertising partners, we may collect information that cannot be used to identify who you are. This type of information that may be collected are things like:

2) How do we collect information?

We collect this information in a few different ways.

When you provide us with information in making a purchase.
Fairly straightforward. You book a room, we receive personal information.

When you sign up to our e-mail list.
If you sign up to receive updates, we end up with a bit of your personal information. With your permission, we send you special information and you can decide to opt out at any point.

When you communicate with us.
When you reach out by e-mail, social media or by hand delivered letter, we may keep those for our records.

Information we automatically collect.
Like most websites, our services may incorporate fancy things like “pixel tags” and “cookies” which allow us to track actions and serve you information about our products and services. All of these collect Non-Personal Information.

3) How is the information used?

Personal Information could be used to:

4) What about Non-Personal Information?

From time to time, we use third-party advertising companies to serve you ads when you visit our website. They may use Non-Personal Information about your visits to this and other websites to provide ads about goods and services that are of interest to you. If you would like more information about this wizardry or to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies you can look here.

5) What else?

We want to make sure you enjoy your time with us and that your information is protected. Personal Information will only be used or shared when necessary and we would never sell you out by giving your information to third parties without good reason.

Unsurprisingly, we reserve the right to update our privacy policy at any time. When that happens, we will update the effective date at the top of this page so that you know.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. We hope to see you around soon.
